Scream 6: Release date, cast, plot and Update

Scream 6

After the critical and commercial success of Scream 5, 2022's half-reboot, half-sequel to Wes Craven's darkly humorous 1996 slasher classic, which brought attention to the original film while introducing a new generation of characters to a new generation of fans, a sixth installment of the Scream franchise is in the works.

After surviving the most recent Ghostface killings in Scream 5, new franchise members Melissa Berrera, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Mason Gooding, and Jenna Ortega are expected to return for Scream 6's summer 2022 start date.

The principal Scream cast member Courtney Cox has also announced her comeback as Gale Weathers in the gory follow-up to 2011's Scream 4. Hayden Panettiere also reprises her role in the film.

One essential cast member won't be returning for Scream 6 though.

Neve Campbell, who has played the title character Sidney Prescott in each of the first five episodes of the horror series, most recently in Scream 5, withdrew due to a compensation disagreement from the next Scream sequel. See the cast profile for additional information.

As writers, Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett are returning, and Guy Busick and James Vanderbilt are back as directors.

In a recent interview with Empire, Gillett said of Scream 6, “This movie needs to be ready to risk it all in order to violate all of those expectations.” And since we've gotten so deep into the Scream movie rabbit hole, everything is now up for grabs.

The current release date for Scream 6 is March 31, 2023 according to Digitalspy.

This indicates that the film will be released little over 14 months after Scream 5, which hit theatres on January 14, 2022.

The existence of a new Scream film was announced by Paramount and Spyglass in February  2022, with the following details: “We are incredibly appreciative of all the admiring viewers who have embraced our movie all across the world.

We eagerly anticipate what Project X Entertainment, directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, writers Jamie Vanderbilt and Guy Busick, and the cast of Radio Silence have in store for our Woodsboro family.

Scream 6 cast

As mentioned above, the survivors from Scream 5—Sam Carpenter played by Melissa Berrera, Mindy Meeks-Martin by Jasmin Savoy Brown, Chad Meeks-Martin by Mason Gooding, and Tara Carpenter by Jenna Ortega—are all scheduled to make a second appearance and confront Ghostface in the upcoming chapter. Roger L. Jackson will reprise his role as the evil voice.

The Hollywood Reporter claims that Dermot Mulroney from My Best Friend's Wedding has joined the cast of Scream 6.

Mulroney and the four main characters from Scream 5 will return, along with Hayden Panettiere, who played Kirby Reed in Scream 4 from 2011 in the slasher sequel.

The aforementioned Courtney Cox, who played Gale Weathers in the original Scream cast, has also confirmed her comeback.

Meanwhile, Neve Campbell has said that due to a financial disagreement, she will not be appearing in the sequel.

Sadly, I won't be producing the following Scream movie. In a statement to Variety, Campbell stated. “As a woman, I have had to put in a lot of effort in my job to prove my worth, particularly when it comes to Scream. I believed the offer made to me did not reflect the value I had contributed to the business.”

It was a really difficult decision to go on, she continued. I'm grateful to all of my Scream fans. You have always shown me such amazing support. I will always be appreciative of everything this brand has done for me over the past 25 years and for you.”

David Arquette, a main cast member of Scream, is also having a tough time after Ghostface savagely killed his character Dewey Riley in Scream 5.

Fans of the series will recall that Dylan Minnette's Wes and Marley Shelton's Judy Hicks both met a terrible death in Scream 5, making Riley not the only returning Scream character to do so.

Additionally lost their lives were Sonia Ammar's Liv McKenzie, Kyle Gallner's Vince Schneide, Jack Quaid's Richie Kirsch, and Mikey Madison's Amber Freeman.

Scream 6 Plot

The movie “continues with the four survivors of the Ghostface killings as they leave Woodsboro behind and start a fresh chapter,” according to a brief storyline summary, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Although most of the plot is being kept a secret, it appears likely that the upcoming episode will follow the four cast members Ortega, Barrera, Gooding, and Brown as they leave Woodsboro in search of a new beginning.

Sadly, because this is a Scream sequel, it seems unlikely that they will have tranquil lives..

The Scream series is renowned for offering meta commentary based on horror movie clichés, frequently going against what fans anticipate.

Gillett recently told Empire about how Scream 6 will have to plunge further into a meta-horror rabbit hole than ever before: “In order to defy all of those expectations, this film must be prepared to take all of its chances. And since we've gotten so far into the Scream movie rabbit hole, everything is currently up for grabs.”
